This futuristic science-fiction adventure series told the story of alien invasion, being fought off by a top-secret team on Earth called the Blackwood Project. The Blackwood Project, led by astrophysicist Dr. Harrison Blackwood (Jared Martin) was recruited by the government to battle the invaders from the planet Morthrai who came to Earth to find a new home, knowing that their own planet was about to be destroyed by their unstable sun. But bacteria on Earth caused the aliens to lapse into a suspended animation. However, not far behind came a second wave of stronger, more technologically-advanced aliens who brought with them a deadly replication machine, able to clone humans. As the members of the Blackwood Project were driven underground, all humanity had to rally together to save the earth.
